Ken page founder of the dating workshop deeper dating
Arriving with my husband Tony at a two-day course called ‘Rescue Your Relationship’, we’re given a form to complete.
The first question is, ‘How do you react to conflict in a relationship?
The workshop leaders are Maria Arpa and her partner (in love and business) David Ellis.
CPS founder Maria, 53, has been on quite a journey to reach this point.

A well-known religious leader once said that whenever he hears that he has offended someone, his first response is to stop and think if, in fact, he may have said or done something that could have given the of an offense. If you expect others to act and speak a certain way, or assume others will be as kind or compassionate as you, if you’re offended when they don’t rise to the level of your expectation, you will almost always be offended or on the verge of it.
That, by itself, is a great attitude of humility that would make him almost immune to offense. He went on to say that he often found that he had indeed said something that could have been construed as offensive. This way, less in life will offend you and happiness will be much less fleeting too.
